EDUCATIONAL FUNDRAISER TO HELP LEAGUE!
The Arch Rival Roller Girls ask you an all-important question…”Are you smarter than a rollergirl?”
You’ll have the opportunity to answer that query in a few days and in the process help out the league with the costs associated with St. Louis’ hottest action on wheels.
ARRG presents its fourth annual Trivia Night this Friday night in St. Louis, where your table of ten can answer questions that could inevitably lead to a cash prize.
Here are the details for the event:
WHAT: 4th Annual ARRG Trivia Night
WHEN: Friday, February 24 at 7 pm (Doors open/registration at 6 pm)
WHERE: The German Cultural Society, 3652 South Jefferson, St. Louis, MO
COST: $20 per person (includes free beer, wine, soda and light snacks – no outside alcohol, please.) Tables of ten can be pre-registered for $200 per table.
Go to this link at Brown Paper Tickets RIGHT HERE to reserve your table.
Here is your chance to organize your table of ten and compete against other brainiacs in a wide variety of categories.
Don’t think that the questions will just pertain to derby. Sure, there might be a derby-related question or two, but one will find that the categories are just as diverse as any other general trivia event.
At past trivia nights, categories have included the following: motion pictures, sports, music, literature, geography, St. Louis history, pop culture and famous femme fatales (or would that be infamous?)
And just because you’re not part of a table of ten doesn’t mean you can’t play.
Personal reflection: Two years ago, I attended Trivia Night without a team in tow. I was paired up with other individuals who were also solo. The collaborative efforts of the “team made from scratch” netted a second place finish and the proverbial trip to the “paywindow.”
Teams can boost their score with the purchase of mulligans – consider it an automatic correct answer to a question left answered or unsure – for the cost of $1 per round. If anything, the purchase of mulligans can add 10 points to the team’s total score.
A silent auction featuring gift baskets and a 50/50 raffle will also be held. Last year’s 50/50 resulted in a grand prize jackpot of close to $1,000.
One again, the event is designed to raise funds to offset the costs associated with the league, so you’re directly contributing to the cause with the purchase of a table of ten.
We’ll see you this Friday for the fourth annual ARRG Trivia Night!
ARRG ROLLS THROUGH MARDI GRAS PARADE!
The Arch Rival Roller Girls participated in the River City Casino Grand Parade Saturday at the 33rd annual Soulard Mardi Gras.
Sunshine and pleasant weather at this year’s parade resulted in a high spectator turnout. Although parade officials do not give out estimates for attendance, organizers had prepared for hundreds of thousands to view the parade. Over 112 entries participated at what is considered to be the second largest Mardi Gras celebration in the world.
ARRG, along with the STL GateKeepers mens flat-track derby franchise, rolled along the parade route that started at Busch Stadium, worked its way down 7th Street to Broadway and eventually finished at the A/B-InBev headquarters.
ARRG and the GateKeepers are already lining-up to prepare for another yearly event, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, to be held Saturday, March 17 in downtown St. Louis.
NEXT MONDAY IN THE ARRG NEWSCENTER: It’s time for the ARRG travel season! But for a welcomed change, the travel season begins at home this year. The ARRG All-Stars – ranked sixth in the WFTDA North Central – face a top ten that looks to rebound following a disappointing 2011. It’s a squad that not all that long ago made the trip to the national tournament. Plus, the Saint Lunachix gear up for their season opener as well. Next week, we’ll preview the Saturday, March 3 doubleheader featuring #6 ARRG vs. #10 Mad Rollin’ Dolls and the Saint Lunachix vs. MRD’s Team Unicorn.
